Luang Prabang to Chiang Mai bus

Posted by amandabrooke on 31/7/2017 at 11:50

Hi there! Is there any recent information on the bus from Luang Prabang to Chiang Mai? I know this exists, but can't really find any good recent info. Wondering if anyone knows how often this bus runs? How I can buy tickets - do I just coordinate with my hostel when im in LP?
Thanks in advance!

Hi Amanda.
Contact TIGER TRAVEL at LPB, they should be able to give you info.
From Vang Vieng goes a minivan to Chiang Mai, via Vientiane.

See the International Bus section about one third of the way down on this web page - http://hobomaps.com/TravelLuangPrabang.html . These buses only depart on Sun. Mon. Wed. & Friday and leave from the Naluang Bus Station in Luang Prabang at 18:00 PM. Cost was 310,000 kip in March 2017. They didn't sell bus tickets in advance the last time I went so best to arrive at the station an hour early to get a seat. Best to go to the station the day before to verify all this.
